Who Could Ryan Garcia Face Next?

Ryan Garcia’s future remains unclear following his move up to 140 lbs.

The decision was taken following his seventh-round TKO loss to Gervonta Davis. Thereafter, he left his trainer Joe Goossen having decided to work under Derrick James.

The rising star with an electrifying record of 23 wins and 19 knockouts, faces a tough choice over his next opponent. With that being said, let’s dive into the potential possibilities.

Rolando Romero

Rolando Romero, the WBA light welterweight champion, won the title following his controversial victory over Ismael Barroso, where some felt the referee had stopped the fight too early.

However, aside from a belt, Rolly does not pose the biggest challenge out there.

Isaac Cruz

Enter Isaac Cruz, a relentless force in the ring, who has been compared to Garcia’s previous adversary, Gervonta Davis. However, with the risk of a loss, does Cruz pose too great a danger for Garcia to handle?

It’s a risky choice, but could it ultimately raise Garcia’s standing, as Cruz did go 12 rounds with Davis.

Teofimo Lopez

Teofimo Lopez, the former unified lightweight champion, stands as a tantalizing option. However, the outcome of Lopez’s upcoming clash against Josh Taylor on June 10th, 2023, will be key.

If Lopez were to taste defeat, would Garcia be seen in a negative light for selecting him as an opponent? Alternatively, if Lopez emerges victorious, their clash could be a battle for redemption and supremacy.

As Ryan Garcia’s momentous summer bout approaches, the decision regarding his next opponent holds immense significance.
